Good idea to beef up the chassis a bit, I think I’ll put another cross member in just behind the cab when it comes to fitting a tipper. ?

I will take a few snaps of the ones we have here, the rear pivot points and tow bar plates/drawbar can all be combined as a unit which adds a lot of beef to the rear of the chassis, again I will take a few snaps.

@aspenarb thanks very much mate, the pics you’ve sent before have been massively helpful!

Here you go Tom.

 

Tippers pivot point tied into the drawbar drop plates.

Frame behind the cab supported on the 50x50 box which is just enough for the tipper chassis to clear the hump in the chassis where it goes over the axle.

And just enough room on some of them for side lockers.

Anyone had any dealings with a company called "Haven fabrication" I've inquired about prices to convert my hilux and seems reasonable and fairly local to me. Found them on Ebay

WWW.EBAY.CO.UK

Just had mine done by MCB body builders based in Tipton. Excellent value for money got mine done for just under 3k with VAT
